THE BRONX - Some West Farms residents finally have a place they are proud to call home after years of living in run-down, crime-ridden buildings.

Renovations were recently completed on a group of three buildings on Bryant Avenue and East 173rd Street.

The buildings were once ranked among the worst in the city with 1,600 Department of Housing Preservation and Development violations. The transformation is the result of hard work put in by several city agencies, plus the complex owner, Exact Capital.

Longtime tenants say after the renovations, many of the problem-causing tenants were kicked out. Some tenants say they are glad the troublemakers are out, but hope the landlord doesn't start pushing the good tenants out, too.
